A Year of Achievements: 2018 in Review


2018 flew by, and stunned all of us here at CBOBS with what gems it brought in its wake. We're grateful for the results of hard work, public support, and leadership that made 2018 a year for CBOBS to remember and replicate.


<  We took a courageous dive into the unknown and challenged ourselves by leading our first 21-day wilderness expedition ever, a three-week course in the backcountry with USNA midshipmen.

• Our marketing department gave us an insider's look at one of our school leadership expeditions by tagging along with a 5-day 4-night backpacking course with Green Street Academy, a Baltimore city public charter school that prepares its students for college and careers in the 21st century economy.


• The Baltimore Ravens Social Justice Program shared their faith in us by including us in their latest gifting of $200,000 to nine different Baltimore-area organizations. Caw caw!

• Our Executive Director Ginger Mihalik spiced up our Facebook and Instagram feeds with our first social media takeover. More #followourwake stories to come!

• We completed our first ever #GivingTuesday campaign and blew our goal out of the water, raising $2940 in the span of 24 hours. We're #grateful!

>  Maryland secured $1.2M in support for our Police Youth Challenge via The Maryland Violence Intervention and Prevention Program Fund, helping this program aimed to shift police-youth perceptions stay strong for at least another four years.

• Our annual Cornerstone Awards Dinner had us celebrating introspection and starry skies with an evening of dinner, dancing, and humble words from featured speakers Jordan Rose and Ronald R. Peterson, and raised $214,075 for our cause.


We celebrated the fourth quarter in style with blue peter napkins, twinkle lights, Indian food and more at our Annual Awards Dinner for staff. Check out these awesome award winners!
